This was heavily influenced by Robert Fripp, who got a composer credit. Fripp, formerly guitarist for King Crimson, produced Gabriel's second album over the objections of Atlantic Records, which thought his techniques would not be commercially successful. The album had poor sales.
Fripp named his 1979 solo album Exposure after this.
There arn't many lyrics, but they refer to the media invading Gabriel's privacy.
The drums were double-tracked and range across the stereo spectrum.
This is part of Gabriel's story of Mozo, a mercurial stranger who would come and go, changing people's lives. Mozo would appear in "On The Air," "Down The Dolce Vita," "Here Comes The Flood", "Red Rain," and "That Voice Again," but the Mozo story as a stage production or movie as Gabriel intended never developed.
